Fish Kill Alert

Dead fish are lining the shores of Walkers Lake in Avon Plains.

A Northern Grampians Shire spokesperson said Council was aware of a fish kill event, involving redfin and some golden and silver perch.

In November, the Shire issued a warning for the lake after algal bloom was detected

The spokesperson said there was a significant algal bloom over the last month or so at the lake and there was a history of summer blue-green in the system.

“There has been some decomposing weed and blue-green algae present in the water recently and the likely cause of the fish kill appears to be a severe lack of oxygen in the water,” they said.
